Photoshop 6 assistance

by patterson / July 6, 2005 5:58 AM PDT

Can someone please offer me any advice as to the most effective way to eliminate purple fringing? I find it most annoying under the usual circumstances; high contrast landscape shots of tree foliage, etc. I am struggling through PS6 with the ''Dummies'' book by myself. Thank you so much, in advance, for any assistance you would be kind enough to provide!!! Bob

Purple Fringing and Photoshop

There is a free Photoshop plug-in that works very well.

Download the file and drop it in the Photoshop filters folder.

When you startup Photoshop.
Load your photo to be repaired
Select the Filters and you will find a new one called
''FiddaFilters'' - Click on ''PFree''

Without changing any settings, click OK and it should remove the Purple.

You also have lots of controls available in case you want to make some changes to the normal setting.

Instructions are on the webpage.

The filter also works on Photoshop Elements 2.
And most likely all the Photoshop versions.

Thanks a ton for the free link. Here's my problem. I'm a computer challenged ''boomer''. I loaded the program pfree0-2 and it shows up as an icon on my desktop. When I click on the icon, it opens Photoshop for me. I go to filters, but don't see the ''fiddafilters or Pfree. Do you have the time to help out someone whose computer skills don't match his love for photography. Sorry to be a pain.:) Bob

You do not want to click on the file called PFree0-2.8bf

You should use Windows Explorer to place the PFree0-2.8bf file in the Filters folder.

You will find the filters folder somewhere close to:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop\Plugins\Filters

(your location could differ a bit)

Once the file is in that Filters folder, when Photoshop is executed, it will find it.

Open you photo with Photoshop and then click Filters to find FiddaFilters.

Joe, Nice to know about the filter. Nice post.
The issue about P fringing is in the CNET digital camera course. Probably in the archives also.

Purple Fringing

Most of it has to do with your camera.
I have a Canon S400 and have never seen purple fringing. I am aware of the problem. I also use Adobe Photoshop 6.
Have you tried CNET Archives for an answer? I am sure that the issue is discussed in the CNET Digital Photography workshops about a few months ago. Examples of what is purple fringing also. Really nice. You can sign up for these free workshops with CNET. Try it.
